GEOTEXGRID GEOGRID

GEOTEXGRID GEOGRID

Geogrids formed by filaments of high tenacity polyester coated and bonded by one wrapped PVC.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Reinforcement:

  • Slope (provides a low deformation, a reduction of visual impact, landscape integration with the option of natural finish, all with a competitive cost of installation);
  • Asphalt in roads and airports (it delays the appearance of fissures and cracks);
  • On railways (foundations on piles, avoids large earthworks and overrides waiting times for settlement and consolidation of embankments);
  • On underground (prevents long-term soft soil deformation and allows the construction of embankments to evenly distribute loads);
  • In landfills (improves mineral barrier and allows you to take advantage of the available space, building slopes with very high slopes).
GEOTEXCELL GEOCELL

GEOTEXCELL GEOCELL

Cellular soil confinement system, consisting of a set of hexagonal cells, HDPE strips joined by fusion of the material.

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

This product is applied in soil stabilization, both on slopes for erosion control, being the cells filled with topsoil, facilitating the growth of vegetation, as for the stabilization of soils of low resistance under load, being the cells filled with gravel.

WAY TO USE

Geotexcell panels are placed next to each other, from the top of the slope to the base, anchoring them with steel elements, whose length depends on the type of soil where applied. In the case of reinforcement of soils, simply stretch and filled with gravel.

Density of Geotexceldas anchoring elements is 1’5 u/m2, placed in its perimeter and center of the panel. The anchors must have as minimum 0’50 m long and 12 mm in diameter.

GEOTESAN VOLUMETRIC

GEOTESAN VOLUMETRIC

Volumetric mesh for erosion control. The product is specially designed to prevent erosion (rills and gullies) on slopes. Thanks to its volumetric configuration allows placement and sustenance of a vegetal substrate. The GEOTESAN VOLUMETRIC strengthens the vegetation since the roots are attached to it. It also has a light of suitable mesh so contribution soil from entering it.

The volumetric Geotesan is composed by:

  • A PP mesh BOP of 40 g/m², which acts as a substrate.
  • A HDPE rhombic mesh of 125 g/m2, which acts as a base.
  • A HDPE rhombic mesh of 125 g/m2, which generates ripples.

WAY TO USE

Ideal for protecting land erosion on slope: slope of roads, residential areas, gardens, landfill closures, protections.

For the proper installation of the product should follow the following instructions:

  1. Regulate the profile of the slope.
  2. Open two trenches, one on the top and one at the bottom of the slope, to anchor the volumetric Geotesan mesh to the natural terrain and to facilitate the unroll.
  3. Anchor the mesh in the top of the ditch using steel Staples, one each linear metre.
  4. Unroll the GEOTESAN VOLUMETRIC mesh in the direction of maximum slope, making sure that it is well attached to the ground
  5. Fix the mesh GEOTESAN VOLUMETRIC through staples:
    • Slope angle < 45º 1 staple each meter
    • Slope angle < 45º 2 staple each meter
    • At each change of roll overlap 20 cm from a roll on top of the other
    • On side seams overlap 10 cm from a roll on top of the next.
  6. Once the mesh is solidly set on the ground proceed to the fullfilling of soil.
    • If is vegetal soil cover the entirety of the waves (about 2 cm)
    • If it is a projection of substrate this must be applied in different layers of soil to cover the product.
  7. In both cases it is recommended to incorporate a hydroseeding on the soil.
  8. Once the hydroseeding is recommended to extend a capping layer to prevent wind or birds carrying seeds.
